An original version of this article stated that you can flat tow a 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. This was based on information provided by Chevrolet officials to GM Authority at the time the 2018 Traverse was announced.
However, a reader who has purchased a 2018 Traverse wrote to us stating that this is not the case, and that the 2018 Traverse can not be flat-towed. We reached out to Chevrolet for clarification a second time, and were told that the 2018 Chevy Traverse can not be flat towed.
GM Authority was simply communicating what it was told by Chevrolet officials.
We apologize for any confusion this article may have caused.
Ever since the announcement of the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse weeks ago, our inbox has been filling up with questions about the Bowtie brand’s new full-size CUV. One of the more popular ones has been whether or not the vehicle can be flat-towed (otherwise known as dinghy or four-wheels-down towed).
We asked Chevy and the answer is no – you can not flat tow a 2018 Chevy Traverse.
Flat towing is the more common method of towing a vehicle behind a motorhome, so we’re sure that those who have a use for such a scenario will be delighted to hear the news.
